It was interesting dinner conversation at the Kassel Household tonight. First, Laura decided to pass gas, which led to John saying that he thinks he needs to marry Reagan Lyman (his “girlfriend” who gave him the best Valentine EVER) because she likes when he burps. This led to Andy nearly spitting his wine back out and choking while I was laughing so hard that I was crying. God help me. At least, they are cute. Why did we have kids again?!?
We hope we have found the perfect spot for our summer herb gardens. We have an area behind our front boxwood bushes and off our front porch that has only a rose bush and a vine plant in it. It is a good-sized area and is easy to reach. For this year, we planted Basil, Flat-leaf Parsley, and Oregano. I am looking forward to fresh herbs again soon as I was thinking that it would be a few years before we could plant some again!
Laura received her letter for Band at West Middle School along with the instrument that she will play – the Clarinet! Laura was jumping up and down because she was so excited and this momma was smiling from ear to ear. I cannot wait for her to get started! Here is to hoping that someday, she decides she wants more and picks up that Tenor Saxophone that her Grandpa Ralph and I played.
John’s Cub Scout Pack got to have a K9 demonstration at their meeting tonight. It was a big hit with all the kids. John was a bit sad that he couldn’t pet the dog, but he understood that the dog is a working law enforcement officer. John declared the demonstration “really cool” and he was very happy that he got to see it.
